The place to chat about all ur fav olympic moments :)

got up at 2.30 this morning to watch thorpe flatten phelps and van den hoogenband!!!!GO YOU GOOD THING!

I thought the whole thing was pretty funny. They were playing up the whole Thorpe-Phelps rivalry that not many people knew there was another world champion swimmer who had the potential to um, BEAT THEM. I was hoping hoogenband would get first, just to amuse me, but at least he beat phelps!

oh yeah, and I've had a few favorite olympic moments so far. I thought it was awesome to see those greek syncronized divers come out of nowhere to beat all the favorites and take first. And then there was a basketball moment- I didn't watch the game except the very end, but I saw this part. It was between serbia and montenegro and argentina, and serbia was down by a point with four seconds remaining when their player was fouled and they got a free throw. Well the player sunk the free throw and the entire serbian team on the bench was already celebrating when argentina gained posession, passed their way down the court, and threw up a crooked shot just as the buzzer sounded that went in and put them up by one. I never watch basketball, but that was a classic moment.

I thought the male gymnasts were *amazing*. I was just so awe stricken to see how tremendously well most of them did under pressure to deliver or lose.

Vegangirl, that guy who made the last shot was Ginobili, who plays for the Spurs, I believe.

I'm in love with Aaron Peirsol, who won gold in backstroke. he's f*cking hot.

I really like Michael Phelps when he's swimming or getting ready to swim or when he gives those short responses after a race... but does anyone else notice or think that he looks like a different person when he just talks by himself for awhile (like when they show clips of the athletes talking to the camera about various subjects)?

One of those Iraqi guys are hot!

I'm really liking the mens free style swim. Those South Africans are quick!

If we're going to get all "such and such is hot", then I've got to put in a word for the romanian gymnasts...

Neo, do a search for a "Gold Bird Corina" when no one else is around - you will be pleasantly surprised.

By Vegangirl (Vegangirl) on Wednesday, August 18, 2004 - 12:39 am: Edit

hah, she must be one of the ones that posed nude, huh?

some of those gymnasts are so young it scares me. In that sport, people MY AGE are winning medals. makes me feel like I should be doing something with my life! hehe. I saw the 15 year old swimmer today too, Katie Hoff. Holy crap. she's great! And she'll be around for a while.

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Wednesday, August 18, 2004 - 01:07 am: Edit

Nah, this particular girl (and a few others) did gymnastics in the nude for some Japanese DVD. Think about that for a second, guys, then decide what you need to do.

DAMN on the replay of the relay... phelps and thorpe were anchors.. American won by .13 of a second!!! ahhhh :)

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Wednesday, August 18, 2004 - 04:13 am: Edit

Great race! The Americans were way ahead and then once Thorpe came in they were neck in neck. The Americans won because their last guy was an inch taller than Thorpe! Overall, the American team is stronger.

By Feuler (Feuler) on Wednesday, August 18, 2004 - 04:31 am: Edit

That was the second greatest race I've ever seen (greatest was basically the same situation, but it was my high school 400 free relay just out-touching our big rival in the last meet, thus going undefeated for the season ).

woahhhh awesome picture

this is random, but i thought it was interesting. i was wathching the Germany Nigeria soccer match and a German water girl was handing out water bottles. A Nigerian player went to take a bottle, but the water girl didnt let her hav it and gave it to a german player right behind the Nigerian. THe water is all over the sidelines during htese games, it seemed wrong for htis girl to deny the nigerian water.

By Neo (Neo) on Friday, August 20, 2004 - 10:46 pm: Edit

I watched the game, but I didn't see that. Stuff like that isn't good sportsmanship, but sometimes, it's how the people on the sidelines behave.

By Neo (Neo) on Friday, August 20, 2004 - 10:48 pm: Edit

Oh, and Aim -- I just...err...caught a glimpse of what you mentioned up there.

Nice :^)

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Saturday, August 21, 2004 - 03:57 pm: Edit

"+Big Boys"

You will be pleased. This type of thing is too damn important not to be shared with others. I felt selfish being the only one, now you know too, my son.

By Alexandre (Alexandre) on Saturday, August 21, 2004 - 04:16 pm: Edit

Well Peacefulchaos and Rachel, if Phelps is your type, you ladies should head for the University of Michigan...that's where he will be spending the next years. hehe
